Ethical Principles and Publication Policy

The Journal of Artificial Intelligence and Data Science (JAIDA) is committed to upholding the highest standards of publication ethics and takes all possible measures against any publication malpractices. Papers are accepted for evaluation only if they have not been published, they are not being considered for publication simultaneously elsewhere, and they are not going to be submitted for publication elsewhere.

JAIDA is committed to maintain the highest academic and ethical standards in line with the principles of the Committee of Publication Ethics (COPE), Council of Science Editors (CSE), and International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE).

Role of authors

We follow the recommendations of the ICMJE that authorship be based on the following 4 criteria:

  • Substantial contributions to the conception or design of the work; or the acquisition, analysis, or interpretation of data for the work.
  • Drafting the work or revising it critically for important intellectual content.
  • Final approval of the version to be published.
  • Agreement to be accountable for all aspects of the work in ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately investigated and resolved.

All authors should meet all the four criteria for authorship above. Please click for the detailed information.

Role of editors

We follow the guidelines for editor roles and responsibilities of CSE. Editors of scientific journals have responsibilities toward the authors, the peer reviewers, the journal’s readers and the scientific community, the owners/publishers of the journals, and the public as a whole.

Peer review by external referees with the proper expertise is the most common method to ensure manuscript quality. However, editors or associate editors may sometimes reject manuscripts without external peer review to make the best use of their resources. Reasons for this practice are usually that the manuscript is outside the scope of the journal, does not meet the journal’s quality standards or is of limited scientific merit, or lacks originality or novel information.

Editors are responsible for:

Describing, implementing, and regularly reviewing policies for handling ethical issues and allegations or findings of misconduct by authors and anyone involved in the peer review process.

Monitoring and ensuring the fairness, timeliness, thoroughness, and civility of the peer-review editorial process.

Keeping all information about a submitted manuscript confidential, sharing it only with those involved in the evaluation, review, and publication processes.

Role of reviewers

We follow the guidelines for review roles and responsibilities of CSE. Reviewers are responsible for:

Providing written, unbiased, constructive feedback in a timely manner on the scholarly merits and the scientific value of the work, together with the documented basis for the reviewer’s opinion.

Avoiding personal comments or criticism.

Maintaining the confidentiality of the review process: not sharing, discussing with third parties, or disclosing information from the reviewed paper.

Alerting the editor about any potential personal, financial or perceived conflict of interest and declining to review when a conflict exists.

Noting any ethical concerns, such as any violation of accepted norms of ethical treatment of animal or human subjects or substantial similarity between the reviewed manuscript and any published paper or any manuscript concurrently submitted to another journal that may be known to the reviewer.
